Tasting note from distillery website:
Aroma- The first sniff alerts you to a nearby presence... heightened senses are filled with very bright, fresh herbal notes with creeping hints of vanilla and pear. Rich Turkish coffee mingles with sappy pine resin with honey-glazed ham lurking in the background.
With water, more herbal top notes like vetiver and fennel captivate and pull you in while beguiling scents of aniseed, green apple, and leather cause you to drop your guard. Out of nowhere, a sharp tang of smoke and a crack of black pepper fire warning shots
across the senses.
Taste- Suddenly a rich and explosive mouthfeel bursts forth with chocolate, creosote, and tar. A powerful blast of eucalyptus thrashes about with antiseptic lozenges and aniseed. The raw smoky intensity gathers pace before smoked bacon and savory meats sink
into the palate.
Finish- The long, salty mouth-coating finish retreats with hints of cocoa and fudge slinking slowly away.
